Sponsored Blog Post – MonAnnie Cakes
Happy Monday Desi Brides! I hope you had a fantastic weekend.
As you know I am always on the lookout for new and exciting reputable suppliers for the Asian wedding market. Therefore I am excited to introduce you to MonAnnie Cakes. They are contemporary bespoke cake creators based in Reading, Berkshire.
What I love about MonAnnie Cakes it that they view each project individually as an extension of their client. Having got married myself I know how important it is to be treated as an individual and not just another couple getting married. They are passionate about creating a masterpiece that captures their client’s vision. They understand it’s the little touches that can make their clients day special. That’s why it’s so important to MonAnnie Cakes to listen and work with their clients to provide concepts, sketches, flavour profiles and of course special tasting experiences (at no added cost). They know that appearances, smells and flavours can create powerful lasting memories and impressions not only for you but also your guests.
All their cakes and confectionery are freshly handcrafted with the finest ingredients to their client’s specification so you can be sure that you are getting a high quality cake for your big day. What’s more is that you know you are in safe hands as they boast a 5 star hygiene rating. They also offer gluten and dairy free options for cupcakes. If you’re struggling with ideas for your cake why not get some inspiration by checking out their extensive flavours page on their website www.monanniecakes.com
I interviewed the creator of MonAnnie Cakes, Fen, to give you lovely brides an insight into this exciting gorgeous brand.
Tell us about MonAnnie Cakes, what inspired you to start the business?
I have loved baking and cake decorating for many years and have always been passionate about creating beautiful things. As a trained doctor I realised life is too short to not follow your dreams. From this desire and ambition MonAnnie Cakes was born. As I was able to devote more of my time and energy to the brand I refined my skills through courses and practising at home. It was the positive feedback that inspired me to share my skills so that everyone can experience beautiful masterpieces with me. I particularly love creating wedding cakes and sugar flowers. I want to share my passion for cakes with the world!
What hints tips would you give to brides who don’t know where to begin with their wedding cake?
I would suggest that they create a mood board with ideas and concepts for inspiration. This will enable them and their cake creator to get an insight of colours, designs and things that they like. It’s important to look at different shapes and themes to establish what would work well with their wedding. Think of flavour combinations that you think could work. You and your partner may have different preferences so you may be able to incorporate both. A good cake creator will help you with this. They also need to think about how big or small they want the cake. Do they want it to be one of the main focal points?
It’s really important to research cake designers that you believe can deliver on your vision. Look at pictures, reviews, websites and social media accounts. I always recommended that my clients book a consultation and taste some cakes obviously with a cup of tea!
What’s the process you go through with brides for their wedding cake?
At MonAnnie Cakes we work in collaboration with our clients. This consists of an initial meeting and tasting in the comfort of our cake studio. We understand the importance of the appearance and flavour of your wedding cake. We know how important it is to have the WOW factor! During a consultation we will review cake designs, ideas and concepts. We provide a selection of flavours for the tasting to excite your taste buds and get your creative juices flowing. You and your partner’s preferences will be paramount and this service is provided free of charge.
Following this there is a pre-visualisation service which brings your ideas to life with a custom sketch. This is sent to you at no extra cost before beginning your individual project. Once this is approved the process begins.
We also offer a wedding and party favours service. We are able to provide creative cupcakes, hand tempered chocolates, macaroons, and other sweet treats to add the finishing touch to your special occasion.
At MonAnnie Cakes we pride ourselves by offering exceptional customer service. We understand that how we make you feel is just important as the bespoke cake we create for you.
Our motto is “live, love, create” We are passionate about sharing this ethos with our clients to make beautiful memories together.”
You all know I’m a stickler for customer service; I love suppliers that go above and beyond for their clients therefore I completely love their motto and ethos.
